Obstetric cholestasis, danger of stillborn, liver malfunction

Ok! I Am 23 weeks pregnant with a diagnosis of obstetric cholestasis . I am told that my baby is in danger of being stillborn at full term. I have instructions to be monitored on assembly basis once I approach 28 weeks. This is apparently a liver malfunction and I am taking a Rx called ursodiol twice a day to reduce the symptoms. Other than that Rx, the doctors tell me that is all that can be done to help. do you have any advice or suggestions? I m very afraid and wake up in panic during the night. Thank you! AAAAAAA

Dear Friend.
Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
To give you a better advise i need to know your Liver function tests.
Also get a PT/INR done to see for any coagulopathy.
Also make sure that you don't get constipated.
If your Viral markers are negative, coagulation profile is normal, then Ursodiol is the only way out for you
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
